LaserBoxx LBX-559 and LBX-588

Share this on social media:

Oxxius has released the LaserBoxx LBX-559, a yellow DPSS laser module operating at 559nm, and the LaserBoxx LBX-588, an orange version at 588nm. Based on a next-generation monolithic resonator, the lasers meet the cost and footprint of laser diode modules. Both have an industry standard package of only 100 x 40 x 40mm, simplifying integration into existing instruments.

Available at powers of 30 and 50mW in a TEM00 circular beam, both lasers feature outstanding power stability (<0.5 per cent over 8 hours), low noise (<0.5 per cent rms from 10Hz to 20MHz) and power consumption as low as 20W.

The LaserBoxx is built on a highly stable mechanical frame to ensure excellent beam pointing stability and subsequent long term output power stability for single-mode fibre delivery.

The LBX-559 is the ideal source for applications such as flow cytometry or confocal microscopy, notably for excitation of PE or fruit proteins. Its 559nm wavelength fits perfectly the commercial filter sets available for these fluorophores. For higher power requirements, Oxxius offers its SLIM-561 up to 300mW.

The LBX-588 is suitable for fluorescence excitation of Alexa Fluor 594, Texas Red or mCherr and its 588nm wavelength fits perfectly the commercial filter sets available for these fluorophores.

Both lasers are suited to either OEM integration or to laboratory use. Oxxius offers LaserBoxx modules from the UV to NIR, including models dedicated for flow cytometry and confocal microscopy at 405, 488, 515, 588 and 640nm.
